Well I didnt think this would go on as a series. But its quite early in the morning and I am already in form



Scene 1:



From office. Conversation between senior journalist and me. He starts.


Had you been around Patoor yesterday?”


No Patoor”

Who Sir?”


Oh me in Patoor? Err I dont know Sir. I have been to East Fort”

Yeah? Through Patoor?”

Err I dont know that”


Pause where colleague lets it known that me and directions never got along well.

Ok I saw you there in an autorickshaw”


Pause for 5 minutes – brilliant brain thinks back

Oh oh yes yes I have been to Patoor”

Its an old story by now. “Eh?”

I was there. For my dentist appointment”

Laugh. Hmph.



Scene 2:



Internet connection lost in office. Everyone checks on it. Its fixed within a few minutes the announcement of which I totally missed.

So five minutes later I come up with my brilliant discovery


Net kitti net kitti” (“we have got Internet, we have got Internet”)

Laugh. Hmph.



Scene 3:



From yesterday. An online friend N came home. No no I was at my charming best and made no mistakes. Unfortunately N remembers one of the first calls he had made


Hi, Are you busy?”

I assume for some reason that N who had my number stored in his cell would call and ask me if I was ‘Busy’

No I am Cris”

Cause of course to brilliant Cris’s mind Busy should sound like just another name. My explanation is that I heard it Lissy. But noone would believe me anyway.



  1. :))

    1) I’ve my problem with places/directions too! 😛 Hey, you didn’t know the place’s name was pattoor or did you forget it? 😛

    2) You’re sharing your euphoria. Goodie, sis! 😀

    3) This is THE best!

  3. HA,ha,ha. Too hilarious! U crack me up dear. No, no I’m not laughing at you-I’m laughing with u. These kinda stuff happens to me too (all the time!!!)
    1) I’m horrible at giving directions/remembering place names & add another to this list-remembering relatives. Phew! Can write abook on all the crack ups that happen to me. Don’t worry, wont do anything catatrophic of the sort!!
    2) Pure comedy!!
    3) ROFL, luved it!! Something similar to this happened to me. A fellow teacher asked me a doubt from a text(god knows why she did!) She had to explain the word ‘universe’ in a sentence. I explained the sentence and proceeded to explain the meaning of ‘universe’. She asked me if we can say ‘cosmos’ instead of ‘universe’. I emphatically denied “No,no,no its not that. Its……COSMOS!” She looked at me as if I’ve gone bonkers. I was so caught up in explaining that i didnt exactly hear what she said. We both laughed a lot.

  7. @Hari, you are one good kid! Of course I was sharing my euphoria! Why didnt I think of that! And Patoor, I forgot I went there, but there is a good chance I wont know half the places and routes in Trivandrum anyway (and this half would be the one I travel on everyday)

    @Gov, that better be a compliment!!!

    @M.Rose, LOL! You should write your anecdotes too dear! I am sure I would love it!

    @Bindhu, thank you 🙂

    @usha, oh you bet!

    @Prakhar, do and catch their reaction. Thing is I couldnt quite enjoy the joke right away cause I was the one who made the bummer!
